British adventurer, writer and television presenter Bear Grylls on Friday took to his verified Twitter handle, that boasts of an impressive 1.5 million followers, to share a throwback photo with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.  
The photo, which was clicked during the shooting of his popular show ‘Man vs Wild’, in which PM Modi appeared as a special guest in 2019, shows the two eminent personalities sharing a cup of tea. 
Grylls wrote that the photo is one of his favourites and described the moment while pointing out that the wild is the “ultimate leveller”.
“One of my favourite photos: soaking wet and sharing a cup of tea with Prime Minister Modi after our @Discovery jungle adventure together. This moment reminds me of how the wild is the ultimate leveller. We are all the same behind the titles and masks. #adventureunitesus (sic).”

On Facebook, sharing the same photo, Grylls wrote more about the time they were filming the episode with PM Modi. He revealed he had to swim alongside a raft while PM Modi sat on it since it failed to handle the weight of the two and he had promised the Indian Secret Service that he would do all to prevent the PM’s feet from getting wet. 
He wrote, “One of my favourite photos: soaking wet and sharing a cup of tea with Prime Minister Modi after our Discovery jungle adventure together.” 
He added, “Note the raft in background… I had made it to hold two of us but it almost sank when he climbed in it, so instead I swam alongside. I had promised the Indian Secret Service that he would hardly get his feet wet…. well, that didn’t work out so well!”
He concluded his caption with, “This moment reminds me of how the wild is the ultimate leveller. We are all the same behind the titles and masks. Just two people sharing tea and trying to stay warm. All these stories, and so many more, are in my upcoming autobiography: ‘Never Give Up.'”
